TAKE CHARGE

You might have picked up this leaflet because you’d like to know about spotting the symptoms of cancer. Perhaps someone you know has been touched by it, or maybe you’re just curious. Whatever your situation, you’ll find information about what to keep an eye out for, tips for seeing your doctor if something’s not quite right, and some key facts about screening.

If you’ve spotted something unusual, remember: you’re in charge here. In most cases it won’t be cancer – but it’s always best to get it checked by your doctor.
